Chris’ Film Club - Jaws

Today in 1975 Chrissie Watkins is killed by a shark while skinny-dipping off the beach near Amity Island, according to today's chosen film Jaws. One of the first big ‘summer blockbusters’, it made hundreds of millions of dollars and made Steven Spielberg a superstar director. It stars Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfuss and Robert Shaw. Rated PG despite it’s violence and the fact that it is very scary!

 

On Today's Show we were joined by Jodie Bull from REACT Project

Chris’ Film Club - Glengarry Glen Ross

Jack Lemmon died today in 2001. In memory of this Chris is reccommending 'Glengarry Glen Ross'. The film has a fantastic cast to list a few; Jack Lemmon, Al Pacino, Alec Baldwin, Kevin Spacey, Alan Arkin, Ed Harris. This is a big screen version of a David Mamet play. Chris warns us not to expect any action or thrills, as it is a lot of talking and great acting. However Chris assures us it is great fun watching all of these actors play off of each other.

Interior Design Feature with Gwendoline Alderton

This months interior design feature focused on interior design for the men. After a long day at work the average male trudges home and seeks a place of solitude. Sometimes the best way to cater for this need is to have a room dedicated to relaxing. But how would you go about creating and decorating this haven? Gwendoline told us how.

First think about colours. Us men like solid colours, dark blue, black and white are usually winners.  You prevent these colours from being dirgy by adding opulent gold or yellow and maybe acid green or turquoise. Purple can also be a good colour as it can give the impression of confidence and virility.

So once you've decorated your den what next? You need your gadgets! So think about the layout and kit out your room with equipment that will make your life easier. If your an audiophile like myself or a football fan think how best to set up your entertainment system so you get the best experience. Think about beverages and storage of snacks. Of course now you may want to consider a hard wooden floor which will make cleaning easier.


If your a fan of artwork it may be an idea to decorate with some of the classic posters, from Scarface to Roy Lichtenstein. This is your 21st Cave. You are it's dweller. You are in control!

Chris’ Film Club - Scott Pilgrim vs The World

As it is Aubrey Plaza’s birthday today, the film is 'Scott Pilgrim vs The World'. The film stars Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Kieran Culkin. Cera’s 'Scott Pilgrim' falls in love with Winstead’s 'Ramona' and must fight her seven evil exes. The film directed by Simon Pegg and 'Nick Frost collaborator' Edgar Wright, it has a very strong and distinctive visual style, based on the old 8-bit video games and comic books. Chris reccomends this surreal comedy which spoke to him and had him laughing outloud several times.

Chris’ Film Club - John Carpenter’s The Thing

Released today in 1982, 'The Thing' is celebrating it's 30th Anniversary. It stars Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley and Keith David. Chris feels that the special effects still stand up today, adding to this tense, suspenseful and an undoubted horror/sci-fi classic.
 

Business with Roma Bhowmick

This afternoon we had the pleasure of Roma Bhomwick's company as she joined us to discuss and update us on the news from the world of Business on our regular feature. Tonight she will be covering the Retailer of the Year Awards held at the Albans Arena, interviewing and talking to winners. She also talked about the FSB Small Business Year Awards as a previous guest on the show was a winner! The nominations for this year are the 'Specialist Retailer', 'Fashion Retailer', 'Cafe and Coffee Shop', 'Food and Drink', 'Hair and Beauty' and friend of the show Dixies Cupcakery are nominated for an award this year!

Roma also told us about the Growth Accelerator. This is a programme designed to help small-medium enterprises grow through funding and funded coaching in business. A small business qualifies as a business with below 250 employees, or has a yearly income of below £4,000,000. The course costs a small amount, as it is heavily subsidized and is dependent on business size, the price ranges from £600 - £1,500. There is more information on the website www.growthaccelerator.com where there is a self assesment form to check whether your business is applicable to the course.

You can also follow Roma on twitter; tweet her or email Roma at: roma.bhomwick@radioveralum.com with any Business related questions you may have.

Louise Groves from Hertfordshire Social Stuff

Today Danny was joined in the studio by Louise Groves from Hertfordshire Social Stuff, a social group that is a 'great way to meet new friends, likeminded people and to try new things'. Louise's group helps those that may be new to the area and want some company but also those who may want to expand their already established friendship group. Louise lamented the fact that making friends on the internet still has a stigma attached to it but assured us it was a great way to meet people with similar interests.

If the group sounds like your kind of thing then you can visit their website here to find out more about Louise and the group itself.

Indian Cooking Feature with Sheba Promod - Indian cooking on a budget


On this afternoon's show we were joined by new correspondent Sheba Promod.  Sheba runs Absolute Indian Cookery Classes and originates from Kerala, South India.  She specialises in authentic cuisine from this region and shared with us some of her expertise.

This month Sheba focused on cooking on a budget.  When buying ingredients for Indian dishes,get authentic brands rather than regular supermarket brands.  These are often located in a different aisle in most supermarkets but are more cost-effective.

Sheba advised us that the following are essential spices that are the core to almost all Indian dishes and should be kept in stock in our kitchens:

Black Pepper
Chilli powder
Coriander
Cumin
Garam Masala
Mustard Seeds
Tumeric

Take-aways

Whilst take-aways are convenient, they are not cost-effective!  With some planning, Indian dishes can be prepared in advance and stored for consumption later.  Care must be taken when storing cooked food.

Cuts of Meat

Chicken thighs are more cost effective than fillets.  Whole chickens are more effective again.  Some butchers may cut up whole chickens for you.

Beef brisket & braising steak are more cost-effective cuts of meat.  This can work especially well when using a slow cooker.

Lamb - neck of lamb is the most cost-effective cut of lamb and is especially suited to slow cookers and pressure cookers

If possible, use a butchers rather than a supermarket - chicken in supermarkets contain lots of water, which is included in the weight.

Sheba also runs supperclubs, which have been described as "Come Dine With Me - with class!".  For more information check out her website www.absoluteindiancookeryclasses.com/supperclub

Herts Wildlife Trust Feature with Sarah Buckingham

   Our Guest on the show today was Sarah Buckingham and she was telling us about a number of environmental topics locally and nationally. Firstly she was telling us how there is going to be a judicial review on the European Commissions decision to make the fast railway track from London to Birmingham. She stated that the Herts Wild Life Trust has no problem with new and effcient transport but are concerned that those who made the decisions did not consider the long term affects it would have on the environment. If you are concerned you can actually contact your local MP and voice your opinion on the matter. If you are unsure who your local MP's are you can find out on www.theyworkforyou.com/



   Other topics of todays show was Hertfordshires local supply of water. Even though we've had a exceedingly damp start to the summer, you will be suprised to know that water restrictions still apply and hose pipe ban will continue over the summer. The reason for this is that the Hertfordshire area relies a lot on ground water. The water however first has to pass through large amounts of chalk underground which can take years to build up.

   It's not all droughts and politics however. Sarah was also telling us about the National Garden Scheme  that's going on up and down the country. For more information go to: www.ngs.org.uk/

   Other events include the Our Garden Wildlife event which takes place on the 14th July in Verulamium Park in St Albans at noon. Here you can find out more about what you can do to preserve wildlife in your own garden! You can also take part in a competition to win a pair of binoculars worth around £240! All you have to do is submit 6 photos (This years theme is landscapes.) The runners up will also have their photos featured in the latest Herts Wildlife Trust Calender!

For more information on all these events and more go to:

Travel Feature with Andy Jarosz

The Summer Holidays are leering closer ... though you wouldn't have guessed it with the current weather! Today Andy Jarosz gave us some food for thought regarding alternative holiday trips and packages. I don't know how many of you devoted listeners and readers are particularly fond of flying but I for one am not! So Andy's suggestion was why not have travel by train?

Travelling via train may not be the the speediest transport, however it has many positives. It is considerably less harmful to the environment then air travel as well a higher level of comfort and freedom for the passengers to move about. If you travel overnight or plan a long journey you will be able to sleep on the pull out bunk beds available in the carriages.  Also if you book well in advance the price will be considerably lower then if you were to book nearer the date. Another way to help out with the price of longer journeys investing in a rail card.

A good place to the start would be to check out other countries national rail sites. For a look at European rails  you could try the following  link.
 
Any also mentioned that if you do travel in the day time you will be able to take in the sites as your shoot by. What better way to admire the Canadian Rockies of Toronto and Vancouver whilst sitting comfortably and sipping a refreshing beverage?



He went on to say that tourists will to spend more money may consider some of the worlds finest trains. For example The Orient Express or the Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express.

Josh Osho's L.I.F.E EP


John Osho is the freshest soulfully, pop/acoustic bad-boy-done-good face to the music scene.

With the new album in full, L.I.F.E set for release in a few weeks, this teaser which is now available has given me an insight into the potential Josh's album could contain.

Josh's voice reminds me of John Legend with his powerful, yet smooth and easy- to-listen-to warming low register.

Opening with the catchy and up-beat 'Giants' featuring Childish Gambino, the sing along melody catches your attention instantly.

The single, 'Redemption' featuring Ghostface Killah (these high-profile guest stars in the full album includes acts such as Wretch 32) has been a hit with Radio 1 and certainly holds it own in relation to chart topping tracks. With the romantic violin riffs, no faffing about with vocal gymnastics and a positive, feel good vibe, its set to be an anthem for the summer.

The Ebenezer hotel, a tale from Osho's previous drug dealing lifestyle before gracing the music industry's scene, opens with a catchy blues riff and showcases his soulful, smooth and distinctive vocals.

Overall, a well produced EP that includes catchy single releases, characteristics of Josh's background and some tracks which demonstrate potential and signs towards hopefully what'll be another successful album with perhaps some room for development into a more 'alternative' musician.

Fave tracks: 'Ebenezer Hotel' and 'Redemption'

Elizabeth Crampton from the St Albans Citizens Advice Bureau



Elizabeth Crampton from the St Albans Citizens Advice Bureau was our delightful guest this evening and discussed with us the legal cover needed for a holiday, both in individual bookings and package holidays. As well as discussing with Danny, Pension retrieval schemes how to go about retrieveing yours and avoiding the pitfalls of paying companies to do it for you as there is a possibility the retrieved money could be minimal. For information on this you can visit the Pesnion Advisory service site at http://www.pensionsadvisoryservice.org.uk/ or call them on 08456012923. 

Elizabeth also filled us in on the latest revealed scam regarding Pawnbrokers and interest rates. Pawnbrokers are often associated with impoverished lending 'way back when' but nowadays it is far closer to home as many are pawning their precious belongings to help with home improvements and finding it increasingly more difficult to buy back their possessions as Pawnbrokers are not restricted or governed so can set their own interest rates which may increase significantly over time. The advise given is that  if needed using a Pawnbrokers can be beneficial but only if you are aware of the risks incorporated.

For this or any other scams you can contact action fraud via the web site listed below or contact them on 0300 1232047.

Annelies Van de Velde from Kovak!

Tonight Danny was joined in the studio by 1/4 of the Brighton-based, synth-pop band Kovak. Annelies Van de Velde (the one not wearing trousers) braved the rain to be here with us while two of her bandmates were stuck in traffic and could not make it in.

Annelies spoke about how she got involved with Kovak and how the band works (they all write the music together) and Danny also played a couple of Kovak's songs, including our playlisted song 'Killer Boots'. Annelies also discussed her fashion style, moving around the world (she's originally from Belgium and is made of chocolate apparently) and the music that inspires her.

If you want to find out more about Annelies and Kovak then you can visit their website here.

Chris is running the half-marathon!

That's right folks, West Herts Drive Time's very own dashing and charismatic studio assistant Chris Aikman is running in the St. Albans Half-Marathon this Sunday (ok, running is a strong word, but he will most certainly jogging). He's doing it in aid of Whizz-Kids, a very worthy charity that provides wheelchairs and other equipment to disabled children so that they can partake in sports and be what every kid wants to be: a kid!

To sponsor Chris you can go to his sponsorship page at www.justgiving.com/chriswhizzkids and Chris will probably put up a picture next week of him having run the race and looking exhausted and sweaty. Yum.
